Hinterlands release

Are there more details on the timing of Hinterlands' release? Is it confirmed that the expansion will debut at Essen? Is there an estimated timeframe for when stores will start receiving copies?

I still expect it to come out at Essen.

Amazon lists it as coming out Nov. 20. I don't know if that's accurate, but my guess is that it will not be in stores until a few weeks after Essen.

is there any information about the price? will it be around the same cost as the other "big boxes" (base, intrigue, seaside, prosperity)?

Suggested Retail: $39.95

Itís a 300-card set but has no non-card components, so itís $5 cheaper than usual.

Donald X stated that he'd reveal some of the cards before Essen. As Essen is < 15 days away, is there any news on a sneak peak? I just got into Dominion this summer, so I'm not sure how close to release Donald X has revealed cards in the past.

Weíre expecting it out at Essen, and I will preview cards for the week leading up to it.

The sentence after the one I quoted in the last post...

We know one of Hinterlands "hooks" (or "gimmicks" or "theme" if you prefer) is that many of cards will provide something the instant you buy them. So perhaps cards that you gain treasure when you buy them, or perhaps put actions or cards on the stack for next turn when you buy them, or go on top of your deck immediately when you buy them etc. etc.

Quick! There's not much time left for needless speculation!

I have it on good authority that it's actually called Hag Bag.

The existence of this card would make Ironworks into almost a Familiar.

Well, Ironworks wouldn't draw you a card.  But if you were worried about it, you could always make it be "When you buy this card."

Interesting. I'm guessing there's no way to defend yourself from this with Moats, Lighthouses etc. Could potentially make Ironworks better than Witch if one of these are out.

You realize that this is just play2draw's idea, not a real card, right?

Yes, I realise it was "speculation". Still thought it was interesting.
